Obama and Romney All Over The Polls In Florida

As we gear up for another colossal clusterfuck big election day here in Florida, the polls, all eyes will be on how badly we fuck up this election things turn out in our key swing state on Tuesday.

A few months ago, Florida polls gave Obama a modest lead, and then things switched to a solid Romney lead.

And now, with Tuesday on the horizon, the polls have no earthy clue what the hell is going to happen tomorrow.

For now, it looks like Florida is Romney's to lose. But, if the polls are to be trusted, the Sunshine State remains anyone's ballgame.

As of Monday, Public Policy Polling has Obama 50% - Romney 49%. Romney has a 52% edge to Obama's 47% in the InsiderAdvatage Poll, which is pretty much as wide as it gets with these polls.

Pulse Opinion Research has it at Romney 50%, Obama 48%. Meanwhile Zogby has things at Obama 50%, Romney 45% and UNF has it Obama 49%, Romney 45%.

Nate Silver's Five Thirty Eight blog gives Romney the edge in Florida, with a 55.5% chance of winning the state.

Basically, it's looking like it's going to be a photo finish in Florida, which means we're all going to be up way past 11:00 p.m. Tuesday night, waiting for them to declare a winner, only to hear "Florida is too close to call," over and over and over again.

Settle in Florida. We're in for the long haul.

(Unless Obama does indeed win Ohio and then it really won't matter)
